Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi has revealed it was difficult picking a 30-man World Cup provisional squad.

“I wanted the best for the initial camping list, but sadly we cannot take everybody along, we have to drop some of our best and committed players,” he said

“I am happy that the players understand that fact.”

He also said he is thrilled by the responses of some of the players who were not picked for the World Cup.

"I heard what Leon Balogun said and I must say I am thrilled that he understands the very difficult task we have been given by Nigerians,” he said.

“I trust that sooner than later Leon will be back in the team. We are targeting to bring him back during the qualifiers for the Nations Cup in Morocco and I trust we will still be in charge.

“Balogun we reason is one of our stars for the future of the national team.”

The Eagles handler, while declaring his unalloyed loyalty to the NFF, called on the media to support him and the NFF in the task of making Nigeria great through football come the 2014 World Cup.

“They create imaginary disputes between me and my employers, but I dare say there is no disagreement between us all I want is for all including the players who did not make the initial 30-man list to Brazil to support us, so that we can excel at the World Cup”, he said.
